Re: New club Facebook page

http://forum.arielownersmcc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9963 I said it in the above thread and I'll say it again here. Facebook (and specifically facebook groups) is gradually, and will eventually, kill this forum, in a similar way that this forum did to the yahoo groups. Facebook provides a sing...

Re: Snapped timing chain

This WNG is my winter one. It's not been started since march ? It went third time, I checked all the other two chains, refilled the primary, checked the charging and the oil return and let it idle before the of about 8/10 miles before the stop. Riding wise. I was slowing down for some traffic lights...

Snapped timing chain

Here's a picture of my WNG, resting by the side of the road, after a chain snapping and jamming incident last night. The engine, lower, sprocket, came off it's taper as the chain jammed itself against the case. 73211014_10219771434056894_3912604701442441216_o.jpg Looks to be no damage ... the taper ...

Re: Bearing abutment washer 4042-35

Thanks Dave

Looks like I don't have any ... I'll phone about.

Re: I am not getting notifications

I also see lots of failed alerts, where folks have tagged topics for email notification, but have not updated their email address in their profile.
of course, I cannot email them to tell them as the email on record is the same one as is failing !!!

Re: The making of Royal Enfield's nowadays

That's very modern factory, I can a lot of advantages to owning a Enfield. Like cheap to buy, parts are cheap and are available in a flash. But one major problem I just don't like them! And can't bring myself to ever owning one. I've had three. A military wdc with a co engine, a 2005 500 "65&q...

Re: Yahoo Groups

The more groups the more the info is dispersed. A reduction would not be all bad. I don't think there is any point in investing over on yahoo. I don't have any current access, but suspect the traffic has been zero (or close to it) for sometime. This forum is hosted as part of our website package, s...
